    Great hike A bit steep in the beginning and end. Weather changes quickly at this altitude. Beautiful flowers and amazing views Parking may be a bit of an issue. Busy trail but hikers spread out so no social distancing issues even during COVID19.

    Great hike, we finished in 4 hours which included time at the lake. Also saw a moose, lots of birds, and of course chipmunks. The first mile you will still hear i-70 traffic noise but it goes away after that. Beautiful hike along the creek at times I would say more like a river/miniwaterfalls. It is a lot of steep incline but the trail is clearly marked and you don't do much scrambaling with the exception of navigating across some logs in washed out areas.
